JENNIFER LAWRENCE is one of Hollywood’s busiest acting talents – racking up at least three major movies a year – but the actress admitted this weekend that working constantly has its pitfalls.
“I try to keep working so people can see other characters and other things I can do instead of taking vacation time, and now I’m aging like a president,” she told reporters at aHunger Games press conference on Saturday. “I hate waking up without a goal or going to sleep without achieving anything. There have been a few times where I would have loved time off, but I was very aware of how overwhelming these movies and this character was, and that was a big fear of mine signing on to these movies.”
Revealing that she works “obsessively” to avoid going “crazy”, Lawrence acknowledged that seeing the film franchise that brought her global fame come to an end – when Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is released later this month – will be a strange experience.
“I think it will be pretty bizarre when the movie is finally out and everything is officially done,” she said. “There were a few years of getting used to it. Your entire world changes. Now it’s very easy for me because I’m isolated. I have a new normal now. I feel very stable, and normal, and happy, but it took a few years to get used to being looked at differently. It’s kind of an alienating feeling. You don’t feel different but everyone reacts to you differently. Then it was ‘OK, let’s get back to work’ and people react and can do whatever they want. That’s fine and it’s on them. I have a job. That’s how I think of it.”
